Care & Comfort and our Bangor staff support Meals on Wheels
Posted by Care & Comfort on 01/01/2017.
Since 1991 Care & Comfort has provided home healthcare and behavioral healthcare services throughout the State. For each of these 25 years, caring for our communities by giving and volunteering have been central characteristics of our agencies culture. This gift was made possible through The Jeans Fund, an ongoing collaborative fundraising effort between Care & Comfort and our employees. Every Friday is Jean Day, and staff may leave their usual work attire at home and wear jeans for a donation. The agency then matches every dollar raised, and the employees of each branch select their local beneficiaries semi-annually.
“Choosing to partner with Meals on Wheels was an easy decision as their reputation to better lives for the elderly is well known and respected,” said Susan D. Giguere, our Founder and CEO. “For many persons 60 and over who cannot leave their homes and are unable to prepare meals the sound of a gentle knock on their door often means a volunteer with a smile and friendly greeting has brought a delicious, healthy lunch.”
Mike Stair, C & C’s COO, presented the check to Robert Crone, EAAA''s Director of Nutrition Services during our Bangor Branch''s Annual Employee Holiday Appreciation Luncheon.
"Our Home Healthcare Division provides services for the elderly and disabled so they can maintain independent, dignified lifestyles in the comfort of their own home safely for as long as possible," said Mike. "We are pleased to support the Meals on Wheels program whose mission in many ways mirrors ours. I am thrilled our staff chose to support this outstanding organization which provides warm, nutritious food, the most basic of needs, for homebound seniors in our community."
